Wampa Cave / Re: Hasbro Canada - I'd like to spend some money...

If I could offer an opinion.  Don't forget that most major retailers busiest time of the year is Christmas.  It would make sense then for them to do their annual (if it be only once a year) inventory.  I did actually see inventory tags at my local TRU the other day.  It would make sense then, that if they are getting ready for inventory that they would want as little product as possible in the stores, as they wouldn't have to spend as many man hours on counting everthing.  I would expect new stock to arrive in most retailers by the end of the month.

saw the saga 2 packaged lightsabers at my local TRU.  had anakin/vader, obi, mace and vader.

also got a restock of the BYOL with the new packaging featuring half vader, half anakin instead of the kid on the front.

they also had a whack of the new lego, b-wing, a-wing, v-wing, slave 1, tie interceptor.

VERY NICE.  Really like the luke saber.  Got my Vader and anakin a while back.  Can't really afford to get the mace or the luke right now.  But as Garth says in Wayne's World

She will be mine.....oh yes, she will be mine.

Maybe I should just save up for the Darth Maul later this year!!! :star-wars-smiley-026:

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Holiday Special
« on: January 08, 2006, 08:46:21 AM »
A friend of mine at work was able to get a avi file of the Star Wars Holiday Special and gave me a copy of it to keep for myself.  I managed to get through half of it before I fell asleep.  Man is it bad.  Lukes hair went through some changes between ANH and TESB.  I can certainly understand why Lucas wants to erase this piece of crap from history, not that I'm about to give this up!!


Case you couldn't figure that out, I'm now done with revenge of the sith.  Got my holo plo koon on ebay the other day and other than the darn meena tills variant, that's all of them!!!

Going to look nice on a wall, when I have one to put them on.  wife won't let me use thumb tacks.  have to think of some other way to display them. :confused0024:

after waiting for my sister in law to come up with all my ebay goodies, I'm now down to 2 figs

holo plo koon

variant meena tills

got high hopes for the first one, and not much for the second

Got a suprise from energizer yesterday in the mail.  2 months after getting a letter saying they had run out of lightsabers, lo and behold I got my 2nd saber with a letter stating they got more sabers and regaredless of previous letters, here you go have a free lightsaber.  Shipping was even free as they sent back my cheque in October. 

Got the Anakin/Vader saber.  Great gift for the kids!!!!

Wampa Cave / Re: Lucas Family Figures available for order

they were also background characters at the celebration on Naboo at the end of Ep 1.  You can tell they were put in after the fact as their eyes don't quiet line up with where everyone else is looking.

guess how many I got

here's a clue

 :shakehead: :sad0064: :( :confused0024:

Holy fast shipping batman.  The figs that I won on monday arrived today at my friends house in buffalo!! 

My friend also went to his local walmart yesterday afternoon as he was told they would have the separation set then.  when he got there he was told that 1 person came in first thing and bought the 10 sets they had on the shelf.  they didn't even stop him or limit him.  Long story short, if you some guy in the buffalo/amhurst area scalping these things on ebay, DON'T BUY THEM!!!!! I was going to get a couple of sets for fellow troopers at cost, and some scumbag takes them all.

Happy Holidays :mad0177:

Wampa Cave / Re: Best of's 2005
« on: December 08, 2005, 08:44:12 AM »
best fig:  clone commader just because of the cool binocs

multipack: clone evolutions gray version.  that has to be the dirtiest sandtrooper I've ever seen.  my honorable mention would be the jedi vs. sith battle pack due to the retooled and new figs that it came with (asajj ani and obi!!)

vehicle:  Gunship.  Bought it for my kids initially and now I play with it and am thinking about using it for my first custom.

12":  don't collect, but I liked the detail on the greivous

unleashed:  Although the pose isn't my favorite, I have to go with the Best Buy Vader due to it's packaging and "effects" paintjob.   If the Palp/Yoda came with a base of some kind, it would have won hands down, but it lost points for no base.  Also high on the list would be stormtrooper (it was released in the first quarter before the movie stuff hit the shelves)
